Tucked away on Mechanic's Street in Portsmouth

If you're looking for a fun thing to do this weekend, why not visit the Museum of Dumb Guy Stuff.  It is exactly what the title says it is.  A museum of dumb guy stuff like hand-painted action figures, a model train, model cars, and lots more dumb stuff.

Clay Emery is the owner of a beautiful house on Mechanic's Street in Portsmouth that houses the Museum.  His friend, Rod Hildebrand moved his train set in, and Voila!  A museum was born.

Kids Love The Place

According to a report from WMUR's NH Chronicle, Clay said that a 10-year-old boy came into the place and said, "This isn't dumb stuff, this is AWESOME stuff!"  So, they feel totally vindicated.

How Much Does it Cost?

It's free.  If I were walking past the museum, I might go in.  I mean, they do have a running model train and I like those very much.  The other stuff, not so much... but I'm a girl.  The sign didn't say "dumb GIRL stuff."

What Are The Hours?

The Museum doesn't keep regular hours, but it's usually open from 11a - 4pm.  I would look for the OPEN sign in front of the address:  114 Mechanic Street, Portsmouth, NH

The Owner of the Museum Has Held Many Jobs

Clay Emery, according to Wikipedia, has been a blacksmith, a dishwasher, a teacher in Australia, carpenter, zookeeper, farmhand, firefighter, just to name a few of his occupations!  From that list, it's easily assumed that Clay is a very interesting guy!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
